COLUMBIA CITY — What was once an idea to provide aid to Haiti, has evolved into a full fledge mission.

Just Cause International, formed by Whitley County residents Thaddeus McKee, Jeff Royer and Alex Carlin, is a nonprofit outreach organization designed to provide support and hope to Haiti.

A benefit concert is set for Saturday at First Church of God, Columbia City, from 6 to 8 p.m. Nina Daniels, a worship leader from Chicago, will be the featured performer. The concert is free, but donations will be accepted to aid in the next phase of JCI’s work in Haiti.

JCI’s concept is more than simply bringing food and a friendly face to the poverty-stricken country of Haiti.
